I was ridiculously happy to find this email in my inbox! Stories like this just warm my little heart. Please read ahead and be inspired by this man’s acne success story.
Like many of us here, Logan spent years struggling with acne, cysts, debilitating shame, and an all too familiar addiction to chemical acne treatments.
This is the story of how he learned to listen to his body, through which he healed physically and emotionally, and finally found freedom after so many long, painful years:
My name is Logan. I’m a 30-year old guy living in South Florida.
I’ve dealt with acne, cysts and especially the devastating shame that comes from the compulsion to pick at my face since I was probably about 15.
To say that anxiety concerning my skin has been a big part of my adult life is an understatement.
Enslaved by my skin would be a better way to put it. Utterly terrified of what it might decide to do, or what I might decide to do to it.
Usually I find I’m my own worst enemy.
Ever since I started washing my face with Clearasil and using benzoyl peroxide products as a teenager my skin got progressively worse and worse. In high school I went on Tetracycline but it didn’t really help much. Then when I was 19 my mother discovered ProActiv Solution. She started using it and passed it on to me.
